    Assign app to shortcut key

    Advertisement



    Is there a way to assign an app to a shortcut key. Like assigning google maps to key G since it doesn't have a shortcut now. I would settle if I could assign an app to a speed-dial if I can't assign it as a shortcut.

    Nope. If you are using the 8700, you get the front key and the side key and that's it.
    I'm trying to do this "blog" thing and write (or cut and paste) something meaningful a few times a week. Anyway, check it out and read, learn, argue with me, or agree with me, all right HERE .

    No problem, same thing applies, only with the left and right side keys.

    I don't know if this is useful to you, but there is an app called LaunchPad. Once installed, you click on the icon, and it opens with a number of convenience keys: tasks, notes, camera, browser, calendar, contacts--with the option to edit/add your own programs.

    Here's a link, if you want to check it out: http://blackberryshop.pinstack.com/p...e.asp?id=19028. It's not free, but less than five dollars is, in my opinion, reasonable.

    If you have "dial from home screen" disabled, many apps have their own shortcuts. The G key is assigned to Google Talk already. And sadly GoogleMaps does not have a shortcut, but you can assign it to a side convenience key.
